3 Stars   made in china
By on 8/17/2014
It is an affordable pump and I thought coming from Ford Racing it would have been made by Ford in the US but it is made in China. I would have kept looking if I knew this but it has been on my car for 3000+ miles, doesn't leak and doesn't over heat. Other than made in China it's fine

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

5 Stars   Glad I got it

Replaced my leaking pump while having some fabricated valve covers installed and glad I got the FR pump. In the past I just used our local parts house pumps and they would last about a year. Well this has only been on for a couple months, but I have noticed that the engine runs cooler. I guess quality does pay off in more ways then not!

Thanks guys

Great experience. Simple to use website, clear and accurate description. Easy to find what I'm looking for. Clicked and ordered, there was a box at my doorstep so fast! It's just a well done part business, start to finish, very satisfied.

Image uploaded by Robert F. I always like using Ford parts when possible. After this, an SVE radiator, new hoses, and Royal Purple additive it in 45* temp it would not go over 155*. I have a 160* thermo so I will probably go to a 180* in the spring. Thanks LMR!

5 Stars   Nice water pump!
By on 4/6/2015
This water pump was purchased to replace a 25 year old factory pump on a 89 Mustang Convertible 5.0 GT. It was an exact fit and comes with all needed gaskets in the packaging. I know this is a Ford Racing product, but it is not made in the USA. it is Chicken Chi Pan (China manufactured) with a sticker that says FoMoCo on it. I assume that means Ford Motor Company, but don't be discouraged about ordering one. It appears to be pretty good quality and works well. Installation is pretty straight forward. removal of the A/C compressor mount is required, but that is a pretty simple task, just rest it off on the side without removing any compressor fittings or wires. I am running an electric fan, so removal of factory fan and shroud was not necessary for me. If your is factory, you will need to do this. Over all I am happy with this water pump at such a reasonable price. I recommend this product.

5 Stars   Fits
By on 2/11/2016
Ordered Saturday, arrived Thursday despite bad weather, and was free shipping. Was well packed, a box inside a box with paper cushioning in between. Not a single part number on it, doesn't say ford racing on it. Looks just like the part store China made rejects I was trying to avoid. It was inexpensive but it was a downer seeing the made in China sticker and lack of part numbers and brand name.

1 Stars   Good for, poor pully alignment.
By on 8/13/2015
Purchased this water pump last week. Fitment on the timing cover was great, cleared my aftermarket balancer very nicely, but the length of the rod and pully mount are longer than factory. My after market balancer came with spacers very similar to the truck flow one you sell on this site. Because the rod is longer than origional water pump, my pullies do not line up.

Even though this is a Motorcraft water pump with a Ford Racing sticker of the top of the Motorcraft label and not an actual Ford Racing part it is much better quality than any of the aftermarket water pumps.

4 Stars   Way better than a parts store junk pump
By on 1/28/2016
This is a great pump. The reason I give 4 stars is for cheap black gaskets. I went with the felpro premium gaskets. Only $4 at the parts store.
